"Quick brown fox..." to Latin

I'm seeking help translating the English pangram, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog," into Latin. I tried Googling it and Google Translate first and got an assortment of ideas, including the following:

"Vivamus et novos transiluisse Canis ignavus."
"Vulpes velox fuscus saltare sur canis puter."
"Velox frons vulpes volpes salto super ignavus canis."
"Vulpes velox fuscus..."
"Hect-antechron: civerto fulverto vulpren; supreit: inersuto cainren." (At least that one's funny.)

Cross-referencing this Latin/English translator makes me think it's somewhere along the lines of velox + brunus/badius + vulpes + salio + super + ignavus + canis (before conjugation).

I'm sure there's different ways to translate it but I have no idea if any of the above would be passable to someone who's a Latin expert. So any help would be appreciated.
